    2 nightstands

    I started 2 nightstands my son wanted as christmas gifts a few weeks back. He drew up a plan, includes a 2.5 inch high shelf for laptops. He wanted it 6" off the floor so I turned some feet. I finally did a dry fit yesterday. Been away from any woodworking for several months, this is the 1st project since last February

    Well done, Bryan. The thin shelf is a curiosity. Can you share the purpose? I can think of book rack, I-Pad storage?

    Great looking furniture. Your son should be very pleased to have it. From the looks of it, he will have it for a very long time: that is not Ikea.

    However, I don't understand why anyone would want a laptop next to a bed.

    Enjoy,

    The 2.5"high shelf is to put a laptop in there, as per owners ( My 40 yr old kid) drawing. These kids live differently than us. Everyone in the house has a laptop + cell phones, etc. We have 3 married kids, with 10 grandchildren amongst them, and they are all the same, all kinds of electronics in the house.
